  1. I thought so too - and then he said it again a few minutes later about Paterson as well.
  2. Taylor Moore really does seem like such a great guy, with a brilliant attitude. I really hope he makes it in the long run with City.
  3. The irony is the original person who used the term thanked whoever pointed it out, and quietly changed their post which could have been the end of it. It was that "getting offended on others behalf" guy (who was incredibly ironically getting offended on the original persons behalf) who sparked all this. It's not hard if you use the wrong term to just apologise, or even just make a mental note to try to change what you say next time you're in that situation. It takes basically no effort and makes people happier, so why not? Personally I think it's right to point these things o
  4. Wait, I thought they apparently hated S82, as well as all singing/standing and wanted to sanitise modern football? Now they're obsessed with it? I can't keep up.
  5. Yep quite right. If some players (who lets not forget are at work by the way, not on a piss up with their mates!) couldn't handle having a female coach or manager that's their issue, and shouldn't be seen as a reason not to appoint one. Why should a football player be expected or allowed to react any differently to having a female boss to anyone else? Why would they even want to? As someone above said, they would no doubt get a lot of jokes made at their expense the first time they lost a few games or gave a snappy post match interview (as all managers do sometimes) - but with time t
  6. Right, but you were talking about having to sell his best players. I'm simply saying it's the nature of being a championship club that you have to sell your better players for a lot of money most years. On wage budgets, this site: https://www.walesonline.co.uk/sport/football/how-final-championship-table-would-16506843 says Forest, Brentford, and Leeds all have very similar wage budgets to us in 2018/19 - not sure if this seasons are available yet, others who pay more attention to that kind of thing will know better than me. You could also look at expenditure: WBA: £18.63m L
  7. Perhaps, if you look at expenditure last summer though for example (I know it's not the be all and end all, but a reasonable metric): The top 6: WBA: £10.91m income Leeds: £27.36m income Brentford: £8.15m income Fulham: £7.65m expenditure Forest: £6.53m income Cardiff: £1.61m income It's not like we're the only ones bringing in a lot of money.

  8. Clearly they don't post on the Brighton forum then! It's not often you see fans talk about an ex-manager so highly. It's hard to think of too many of ours who'd get the above comments!
  9. To be honest I'm not a fan of the emjois in general, although I expect I'll be in the minority. I feel like some people make posts just to "farm" a load of likes, or otherwise don't post something too controversial for fear of getting aubergined. Post ever win there's a thread for each player with 30+ likes saying he did a jolly good job etc. I also think they can encourage people to just skim a thread and read a few posts with a load of likes only, which then end up with even more and so on. If they were removed though I guess we'd end up with endless quotes saying "+1" and "Good post" w
  10. I think it's an interesting point that the club will have to budge too. The "project/vision" is obviously important, but I hope Steve/Mark/Jon are not pig headed enough to also think they will have got the vision spot on at a first attempt. They need to accept they will have made mistakes, some lines should be redrawn, and compromises made. For the project to truly be successful long term I strong believe it needs to evolve over time, and as they learn more - and they will have learnt a lot from the last four years or so. For everyone to be joined up, they cannot expect to write a li
  11. I agree with a fair bit of your post but let's not rewrite history here - we had a single top ten finish under Lee. Since he joined we've finished 18th, 17th, 11th and 8th. I think we're a mid table club under Lee, not a settled top ten one personally. If he kept going this year it looks like we'd have had a single top ten finish in five seasons.
  12. Talking of passports, what does everyone think about Brexit?
  13. I feel for the bloke honestly, came from an unremarkable but steady QPR, adored by their fans and on track for the golden boot with a bit of hard work. Comes to city, different people in a different formation around him every other game, and we've won what - twice since he joined in January? Not surprised he looks pretty miserable!
  14. There also must be some kind of joke about a Lee falling in the Forest here, with no fans around to see it...
  15. Good post Dave. Thought this was interesting - comparing our starting lineup from the 0-0 against Forest earlier in the season and our last game v Sheffield Weds I think we had 4 of the same starters (Williams, Baker, Weimann and O'Dowda).
